Default Commercial Steamer


I'm about to get a free Commercial grade steamer from a co-worker who just wants it out of his garage. It looks pretty heavy duty and expensive to buy new, so I really couldn't turn it down for free!


Any ideas on what I can make with it? I'm about to start BBQ Catering, so any ideas would be appreciated.

Put leftover BBQ in vacuum bags and just toss them in there to reheat. No fooling, it may be better after reheating than it was the first time.

Out here, they use those to finish off burritos after wrapping in foil, just a couple minutes to heat through.
me: I don't drink anymore

Yelonutz: me either, but, then again, I don't drink any less

Pastrami all the way. Plus especially you're doing catering offering home-made pastrami vs regular brisket will get you more sleep and a less ornery product.

Great for reheating any meat, I never used plastic wrap or vac bags, just place meat in a foil pan with drain holes. Also great to freshen buns or bread if it has gotten a little stale. I know the ad said use tap water, but I would only use distilled water and run some vinegar in it once in awhile, watch the small holes that they can become clogged with lime or calcium. If you don't want the outside of something like a burrito to become doughy, or soggy, I would wrap it in foil like Landarc suggested.
I can only give credence in facts I believe factual. If those facts are wrong, and are proven as such by facts, I must only give those facts credence, if I believe them as factual.

When the going gets tough, I take more fiber.
